1962 Austin Healey Sprite Mk2 For Sale

Offered for sale is my 1962 Austin Healey Sprite Mk2 ’MFO 430’ (non-transferable plate). A rare survivor car which has been maintained and improved over the years without ever having had a full ground up restoration. Although the car’s cosmetics may require superficial improvement with the 20 year old repaint in Old English White not presenting to the best standard, the car is completely structurally solid with the Healey benefitting in circa the year 2000 from new sills, and rear wheel arches plus repairs to the rear spring hangers, the exemplary Mot history which is available online is testament to its solidity. The interior is in a good, useable condition with the original bucket-type seats still in evidence, the dashboard has been trimmed with leather hide and benefits from a comprehensive complement of gauges including a useful electronic rev-counter replacement. The weather equipment is in excellent order with the distinctive, removable side-screens having triplex toughened glass replacements. Mechanically the car benefits from a large valve high compression head skimmed to 60 thousand, opened up ports for aided breathing and a three into two exhaust manifold, the little Sprite drives well, accompanied with a characterful sporting rasp and has an electric fan fitted. As you can see in the photographs the Sprite’s appearance is not factory-standard, sitting on MG Metro alloys with spacers and new road springs, helping to alleviate the harshness from the ride, and its absence of the thick chrome bumpers- both of these changes are easily reversible with the original hub-capped wheels and the bumpers which are in serviceable order included in the sale. Priced competitively, ‘Spridgets’ are becoming increasingly collectable, with this fun little motorcar being a prime candidate to use and improve over time, presenting an affordable ticket into entry-level motorsport as it is eligible for participation in various series, or would equally be suited to those who fancy a first-time foray into classic car ownership, with minimal annual insurance costs, superb parts support plus tax exemption. Genuine reason for sale. £4,500
